    I would like to thank you very much for a lot of valuable information and specific tips on how to improve the diet of these children (son 5.5 years old, limited menu). I have to say that after watching the webinar, I feel relieved that we are not alone in this and that the way to improve our diet is simply here, and also that she doesn't actually eat very little of those foods, even though it is very little compared to "normal". I've also gone through the online course of The Eating School but here I feel a lot of support, that when a child has ASD, some things don't work, or they don't work right away, and that's a great support. Thank you.

    Professional and at the same time human approach.
